Oakdale, Stanislaus County, California, United States
Willy Tea Taylor is a singer song writer from Oakdale, California. He is co-frontman of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit and spends his time writing, recording and perpetually touring with an ever growing following in Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, Oregon and Northern California.
His recent solo album, 4 Strings, has received critical acclaim from the independent music press in the US with No Depression Magazine lauding him as "probably one of the most important American singer/songwriters of our time" and Saving Country Music saying "it is hard to listen to and then say that better songs have ever been written".
Willy Tea is driven by taking people on a musical journey - it doesn't have to be fun and doesn’t have to be emotional but it has to take you somewhere. At his happiest when he's playing with friends or in the bosom of his family Willy is very proud of his roots - he comes from a long line of cattlemen - and he can lead you in a dance and tell stories that'll bring you to tears, he's a hell-raiser and poet.
He is currently touring the US with Tom VandenAvond and making a film entitled 'Searchin' for Guy Clarke's Kitchen', an independent movie that explores that magic happens when song-songwriters play for each other.
